What is a Life Plan Community?
A Life Plan Community (sometimes called a continuing care retirement community or a retirement living community) is a retirement lifestyle that offers its residents a wide variety of housing and health care options. As an independent living resident, you live in your own comfortable apartment home or villa. We offer a beautifully landscaped community free from the worries of:
- Snow removal
Residents enjoy delicious chef-prepared meals in the community’s dining venues, or can cook their own meals in personal, fully equipped kitchens.
You’re guaranteed access to a wide variety of on-campus health care options, such as:
- Short-term rehabilitation and therapy services
- Assisted living
- Memory care
- Skilled nursing
How does a Life Plan Community differ from other types of senior living such as active adult communities or assisted living?
A Life Plan Community offers a worry-free lifestyle with a wide variety of housing and long-term health care options. Active adult communities offer homes or condominiums on a community campus that typically offers amenities such as:
- Swimming pool
- Community-generated activities
The active adult community maintains the grounds, but you’re in control of the upkeep of your home. If your personal health needs change and no options are available within the community, you would likely need to move. Assisted living communities provide help with everyday needs, such as:
- Medication management
If an individual needs limited assistance every day, but not constant nursing care, assisted living is a good choice.
